PLYMOUTH – Terryville Public Library has several upcoming children’s programs for Christmas and New Year’s.

Jessica Archambault, children's librarian said there are a variety of upcoming activities at the library at 238 Main St.

“We are open and there are lots of things going on inside the library,” she said. “We have programming all month long, in-person and virtual.”

This Saturday, at 10:30 a.m. at 11:30 a.m., Santa Claus will be reading a Christmas story to children and there will be opportunities to take a picture with him. Participants will also receive a small present and a goodie bag. Registration is required for this program.

Through Dec. 15, the library will have a mailbox set up marked “North Pole”, where children can drop off letters for Santa.

“Santa will respond and they will also get a small gift,” said Archambault.

The library will provide letter templates and people can also email tplchild@biblio.org to have a template emailed to them.

The library will also be offering programs over winter break.

A “Tiny Book Workshop” will be offered Dec. 27 at 6:30 p.m. Participants will be able to make at least two miniature books to take home with blank pages inside. This program is intended for children ages 8 to 12. Registration is required.

The library will also offer a “Take and Make: Gingerbread Person” kit Dec. 28 through Dec. 30. Families will be able to pick up a kit with almost everything they need to make a Gingerbread person craft while supplies last.

On Dec. 30, the library will offer a “snowball slime” craft at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. This program is intended for children ages 5 and up. Registration is required.

The month’s activities will wrap up with a “Noon-Year’s Eve” celebration with Turtle Dance Music on Dec. 31 at 10:30 a.m. The virtual program will feature “Winter-Wonderland Music, Bubble and Comedy Show.”

The show will include “winter songs”, New Year’s songs, movement activities, giant bubbles, children’s stories and interactive music technology. At the end of the show, participants will be encouraged to join in a sing-a-long to ring in the new year.

The show is crafted to be inclusive for all children, including children on the Autism Spectrum. Each song in the 30-minute virtual show is accompanied by hands-on, visual, and sensory experiences designed to help kids learn and have fun at the same time.

Registration is required to participate in this program. Those who register will be sent a link to join the livestream on Zoom.
